2011 Burke Family Cabernet Sauvignon
Here’s a spectacular wine coming from one of the Granddaddy winemakers of California, with ages of experience to his name and awards covering the walls of the winery. This is a classic Cabernet, a pure clean king of reds featuring lack currants, black berry and cedar with back notes of dry herb while black fruits highlight the refreshing finish. This is a great food wine perfect for meats and mushrooms, stews and meat loafs. A harmonious and balanced Cab with velvety tannins and ripe black fruit flavors of blackberry and cassis. Licorice and cedar add complexity to a smooth finish.
2011 Fair Oaks Reserve Zinfandel
Californians love their oak trees and the people at Fair Oaks are no exception. Their winery is named for the two giant oak trees that form the gateway to the vineyard. California’s love for Zinfandel is almost as old as their love for these majestic trees. Known as the “authentic red” of California, Zinfandel plantings can be traced back to the time of the gold rush in the mid-century. The 2011 Fair Oaks Reserve Zinfandel continues this storied history by using heritage vine, vineyard and oak to produce a light, bucolic wine. Fruity and jammy with gentle tannins, this is an ageless wine.
2011 Geja's Big Bold Red
This wine is a red blend with a fierce attitude that forces you to sit up and pay attention. Old-vine Zinfandel grapes take the lead, giving the Big Bold Red a classic “big” wine taste. The Zin’s presence makes this a dry table wine with jammy black fruits. The real spine in the blend comes from the Petite Sirah’s pepper notes that help the Big Bold Red find it’s structure. Add in the red fruits from the Syrah and we have a truly remarkable wine on our hands.
2011 Black Fox Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2011 Black Fox Cabernet is a fruit-forward classic example of a great California Cabernet. Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the better known red wine grape varietals worldwide. Known as a prominent Bordeaux wine, expect to find it blended with Merlots and Cabernet Franc. California Cabernet’s are regarded nearly as highly as their French cousins, especially after the famed 1976 Judgment of Paris when a California Cab beat out some of Bordeaux’s best in a blind test by French experts. It’s also the second most planted grape in Washington State, after Merlot, and is also planted in Arizona, New York, Texas and Virginia. Cabernet wines are dense, dark and tannic and many have a strong black fruit flavor.
2012 River's End Merlot
This wine comes to use from the Godfather of Central Coast winemakers as wines using this master’s techniques have gone on to win a plethora of awards. It features a similar profile to the Longchase Cabernet Sauvignon, albeit a much softer one, that features nviting aromas of sweet dark berry in the nose are echoed with harmonious flavors of berry, plum and spice.
